How to Make Simple Angel Wings by sunnydelight18 How to Make Simple Angel Wings by sunnydelight18
Download for fullview.

Just a simple way to make angel wings. The material you make them with can very, especially if you want them to bend away from your body. If doing that, you will need a much thinner material and some wire.

There are many different ways to make angel wings. As I said, these are on the simple side. The best way to make them is with wire, but that can get expensive, complicated, and would require some knowledge of different tools, usually including sewing(which I do not know how to, so this was the best I could do).

I looked at some different ways to make angel wings on google, but nothing was very helpful. All I found out was that I ought to use elastic for the straps. The rest I had to figure out on my own.

You can always use a different wing shape. The possibilities are endless!

Before anybody comments on this, these are ANGEL wings! Please do not tell me that the feathers do not "lay right". I was not aiming for a bird's wing. If so, I would've done extensive research on how a bird's wing works, and looked at many pictures on it. But that's not what I was going for, so *please* don't comment on that.

If you make a pair from this tutorial, I would love to see them!

Enjoy! Full sized finished version coming soon :)

Where did you get the feathers?

I don't exactly remember where I got these particular ones, but you should be able to get similar ones at just about any craft store.
